Former Arsenal youngster (and ball boy) Nico Yennaris, scored a lovely, deft finish for Brentford at the weekend as they beat Rotherham 4-2.

The goal gave Bretford a 2-1 lead in the 78th minute. It was his fourth goal of the season (with three assists) in 33 Championship games.

Speaking earlier in the month, Yennaris revealed the trouble he’d been having with a long-running calf problem with surgery a real possibility at the end of the season. “It’s a difficult one but the doctor and the medical team think they know and it’s one we’ll look to resolve towards the end of the season,” he said.

“It’s hanging in there. It’s tough especially with the fixtures being so busy. We have to manage it and get through. We’ll see what happens regarding surgery – we’ll see how far we can go.”

Yennaris arrived at Arsenal in 2001 when he was just eight years old. He was released in 2014 when he signed for Brentford after loans with Notts County and Bournemouth.
